This new annual thread has been carved out of the previous thread in an effort to reduce the number of megathreads on the AC forum. For those interested previous versions are the original 2004 - 2014 thread , 2015 edition, 2016 edition , 2017 edition, 2018 edition and 2019 edition.

The original thread started by accident but quickly became a popular place to come and discuss off topic things such as hockey, new movies, or almost anything that wouldn't fit into existing AC forum threads. Air Canada or Aeroplan topics such as flight feedback, in-flight services issues, status or mileage earning/redemption are all topics that should go into existing AC forum threads so others can benefit from this information. Topics about hotels or airlines and/or their loyalty programs, destinations, in-flight travel tech. or anything best discussed elsewhere on FT may be relocated to that forum as this thread isn't meant to import travel topics to this forum that are better discussed on other forums. FT is an amazingly diverse and large community so members are encouraged to seek out all of its resources.

While the conversation is more relaxed as it would be in a lounge that doesn't mean however that the FT rules don't apply here as they definitely do so please refrain from controversial topics such as politics or religion, avoid profanities and treat other lounge patrons with the same respect you expect.

Indeed. I was rooting for him last year when he got close and happy he's in now in the final year eligible year.
Also, super humble person. Couldn't be any happier for him.

My dad hardly ever watches baseball, but he was elated when he saw this on the news! So nice to see a Canadian inductee again!

Apparently I've gotten this old and am too stupid to be allowed to heat pizza in my own house.

Thank FSMs for GFs to tell me this. I'd be going to a marriott if it wasn't -10.

What possessed me to sign on for three epic food events of ultra-rich goodness over a span of four days? I gotta get more organized with my social life.

After the orgy of food that was Le Cabane Sucre event at St. Lawrence, heating up pizza sounds like a sound nutritional choice.

The gym visit tomorrow had better hurt.

Can't seem to find a acronym for FSM that makes sense here?

It looks like YVR might actually be getting Uber and Lyft in my lifetime after all.

About freakin' time.
